Gu Ruoyun drew her longsword and cut her arm open. Fresh blood began trickling down from her wound. AS the Hell's Lotus absorbed the blood which contains the power from the medicinal herbs, it's glow began to increase until it was almost blinding.
Unsure of how much blood she had contributed, Gu Ruoyun's face grew increasingly pale. When the flow of blood started to slow, she gingerly took her arm away, took out a pill and swallowed it. Then, she plucked a petal from the Hell's Lotus, propped the man's body up on the bed and placed the petal by the man's mouth.
Instantly, the petal turned into a ray of light and shot into the man's mouth. Gu Ruoyun saw a red light sliding down Qianbei Ye's throat.
Boom, boom, boom!
A powerful force erupted from Qianbei Ye's body. Even though she had been initially prepared, Gu Ruoyun was wounded by the force. She wiped the corner of her lips and stared worriedly at Qianbei Ye.
"No, the power from directly swallowing the Hell's Lotus is far too great. I must think of a way to help Xiao Ye. Otherwise, it's highly likely that Xiao Ye, in his sleep, will explode from this power."
If Zixie was here...
This won't do!
I cannot rely on Zixie for everything. Now, I'll have to solve all my problems by myself.
Gu Ruoyun resisted the hurricane from Qianbei Ye's body and slowly walked towards him. She then hugged him as tightly as she could.
At that moment, the berserk power from Qianbei Ye's body redirected itself towards Gu Ruoyun, exploding against the vital organs of her body!
Gu Ruoyun could now feel a searing pain throughout every vein and artery in her body. She wondered whether she would die from berserk power in the very next second. However, she could not let go of the man in her arms or else this power would return to his body.
"Xiao Ye, I've waited for this moment for a very long time. Ever since you've fallen into this deep slumber, I've crossed the ten deadly trials and shut myself off in a tomb for a year. Even Zixie has left my side. It's been difficult for me to obtain the Hell's Lotus so no matter what, I won't give up on you."
Despite the power going berserk within her body, Gu Ruoyun continued to embrace Qianbei Ye. Blood began to ooze from her skin and slowly began to cover her entire body.
However, a quiet and calm smile hung on her face as if she does not feel the pain within her body.
"Xiao Ye, once, it was you who had always protected me. Now, just this once, I want to protect you."
Just then, a hand pushed the bedroom door open and a man dressed in the law enforcement team uniform entered the room. He stared with a frown at the woman in green who was kneeling in front of the bed.
Next to him was a woman dressed in light yellow robes. Her black-dyed brows stared off into the distance and the tiny smile hanging from the corners of her lips did not match up to her seemingly virtuous face.
"Miss, someone has lodged a complaint with the law enforcement office that you have recklessly caused trouble in the Ye family home. Also, you've raised your hand against another. Is this true?"
Ye Yu frowned as he asked.
Nangong Yue had just gone to him and said that she had been bullied by a Ye family servant girl. If this woman was a servant girl in the Ye family, why would she be staying in a guest room? Furthermore, after making some inquiries, I was informed that this woman had arrived here just a few days ago and had said that she wanted to meet Little Master Ye Nuo. However, during these three days, she had never shown herself anyone and was never seen with Little Master Ye Nuo.
As such, Ye Yu could not determine her actual identity.
